MOGADISHU (SD) – Talks between leaders of Council of Presidential Candidates (CPC) and two of Farmajo’s key allies on the ongoing political stalemate have collapse after Galmudug and Hirshabelle leaders failed to declare their position on term extension.
According to sources, the meeting which place last night in Somali capital took long hours before the sides agreed this evening in Mogadishu to make known their position.
Ahmed Qoorqoor, the President of Galmudug and his HirShabelle counterpart Ali who initially agreed to share their stance on Farmajo’s term extension with the opposition leaders had peddled back, proposing the CPC leaders to meet with the outgoing president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo over the current political deadlock.
But the opposition leaders turned down the invitation by president Farmajo. It was however agreed, a source confirmed that the two leaders return today to declare their position.
Meanwhile, President Farmajo, met with members of the international community including Deputy Special Representative to the UN and Ambassadors from the EU, AU, UK and US.
Farmajo met with representatives of the international community on Saturday where he was reportedly asked to drop the extension idea and return to the negotiating table.
